    True
    But if I remove the Nissan logo to, the confusion must be complete.
    I could tell the masses anything...

    Educated Nissan gurus would call my lie though

    Little bump up for this thread
    Didn't want to start new thread so I just ask here.

    Which size intercooler should do the job in my SpecR?
    What kind of setups is everybody running?

    I mean intercooler should fit behind orginal front bumber (not that aero one and Yes! I know I need some cutting ) and i'm planning getting MAX. 400bhp of it (more like ++300bhp).

    So should it be something like 300x600x100 or thinner or smaller?

    Just like to know how big is yours and how much cutting I need to do?
    Is there some kind of S15-bolt-on-kit which really is bolt-on except drilling hole to batterytray?

    Thanks!

    Hi mate

    I've got the Apex Performance Type 2 kit which partially uses original stock cold pipe so no cutting of the battery tray. Very good price - think they're around 250 GBP or thereabouts IIRC. But if you want the usual FMIC setup with piping that routes are direct as possible then look into the Apex Performance Type 1 kit.

    Not sure on core sizes but it'll deffo fit behind stock S15 bumper no probs. If you have fog light you might have to shave off bits of plastic to get it to fit etc. The bumper itself might need slight bits cutting off but this is minimal.

    The only extra work that needed doing as well was making up mounting brackets to hang the core onto the car at the front as the Apex core mounting points do not line up with the S15 points on the car itself

    When i fitted my type 1 kit the mounting points were spot on.

    I assume they use the same core- although i think the type 2 core sits at a slight angle whereas the type 1 core i have is straight up vertical. That right?

    I did have to cut a slight notch out of the chassis to fit the core in though

    the type 2 is same price as type 1 just over 300..

    much longer route for air on type 2 and smaller cooler.

    also one thing to consider on the Apex kit is the pipes are made of stainless not ally. APex kits are very good though, i run there coilovers and am very impressed

    Stainless is a massive heat soaker!! ally absorbes like a third of the heat of stainless..

    i got a Japspeed cooler kit in type 1 format from sxoc forum, there a group buy in them atm @ 199 nrmally 299. http://www.sxoc.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=426874

    these are ready to post out sameday and have ally piping which was in my interest anyway.

    havent fitted mine yet but will be this wekend.

    my type one fitted perfectly too, but the type two core has a different layout altogether, the end tank is upside down on the drivers side and the outlet is at the top, not the bottom.

    I think it all comes down to whether you're bothered about cutting the battery tray as the Type 2 has longer routing since it avoids the battery tray.

    But IMO worrying about charged air flow sub 400 bhp is just pub talk... won't make a difference... if you drive mine and see the amount of response I get from a remap and it's still only 0.9 bar max boost (it's got +50 bhp and +60 lb ft in the midrange) then you'll se what I mean

    Hey everyone, considering getting a Blitz FMIC. Any feedback? I Know you have to relocate the battery but does anyone know where to exactly? Is it a case of moving it a couple of inches/getting a smaller battery or a major job moving it to the boot? Thanks

    Jack
